Diabetes Awareness: The Downside.... a New Wardrobe?
Here is some commonsense thinking:
I can't understand why anyone who has diabetes wouldn't exercise and watch what they eat.
The down side is that you may have to get an entire new wardrobe since exercise and healthy eating causes weight and size reduction.
When it happens, people tell you how great you look and that motivates you even more.
Other side effects: you'll also sleep better and feel more rested than before you started walking and eating better.
I prefer walking outside, especially when the weather is nice. I even designed a walking path about 2.5 miles long around my neighborhood; part flat and part hilly.
You'll find that a walking program helps more than your body.
"For me, walking time is good thinking time. Nobody is there to interrupt my thoughts. And even when I walk on the treadmill in front of the TV, I find it helps me get ready for the day."
Exercise and healthy eating.... A powerful duo for diabetics!
